Hollyfest is an annual community celebration each Fall in Holly Springs. It features vendors (small businesses, charities, private schools, etc.) and plenty of activities for families, such as bounce houses, games, live music, etc.
My aunt and uncle were in town to visit so the five of us went to check it out.
We had been to something similar during the Fifth of July event a few months back and our son really had a blast. He rode a few rides and went through a couple bounce houses (including a two-story slide that seemed like a good idea beforehand but scared him when he actually started down it) and we all enjoyed walking around and exploring.
As usual, the Holly Springs Fire Department was there with Cinder, the fire dog. Brian had a chance to sit in a HSFD utility vehicle and “drive” it.
The Rotary Club was selling brisket sandwiches as a fundraiser and we kept getting a whiff of it as we walked around. They were really good. It was nice to sit down and enjoy the music in the shade, and spending time with my aunt and uncle is always great. We don’t see them very often, and now that we’ve moved out of Florida, it will undoubtedly be less frequent.
They had haunted hay rides later in the evening, but we already had plans to cook out on the grill for our guests, so maybe we’ll take that in next year.
